Allow decimal points in scores

We're using a (value / estimate) method for determining the score of a feature. The division usually results in a decimal point (so one feature is a score of 3.1, another is 3.4). Right now, Ahah is turning both into a 3.

We'd like to be able to show one decimal place of score. Right now we're multiplying by 10, but that's making for some confusing (high) priorities, as we use the one decimal place score in other places in our company.

    You can now configure your scorecards to include decimal places.

    Navigate to Settings ️⚙️ -> Accounts -> Scorecards to try it out.

    Thank you for following it up. Saves using workarounds and having to explain it to colleagues every time we use the feature. Appreciate it.

    Usually I multiply by 10 to solve this issue

    Yes please - absolutely. Decimals make all the difference for us

    This would be very useful for my organisation as we calculate effort based on man days which can go up to 200. Typically this means even a basic value/effort score comes out as a decimal and is just rounded up to 1 every time. Workarounds are in place but not ideal.

    Seems like an obvious thing which should be enabled (or a choice to round up or down to a whole number). Without this, the scorecard functionality is really limited.

    Same for us, I came from Azure boards where I had configured a variation of the RICE score using some other variables, with decimals involved. Looks like I'll need to change the calculations in aha.

    Agreed. We were using a two decimal place score for Desirability and Viability to calculate Business value. ex: 2.84 In order to not lose score granularity in Aha! we had to move from a 1 - 5 scoring range to a 100 - 500 range with the result being 284 instead of 2.84 Not ideal.

    I would like to see 2 decimal score. As some mentioned before, AHA! shows lots of features with same scores, which is hard for us to know which one is more prioritised.

    Like others have mentioned forces an over simplification of the RICE scoring system, and will force us to make changes to our scoring process based on the limitations of Aha.

    We also wish to properly implement the RICE scoring methodology. It's complicating things greatly to not be able to use the 'regular' RICE scoring in AHA.

    Our company is standardizing on the RICE scoring methodology and being able to use decimals in scoring is essential. While we could substitute the typical RICE values for integers at the same factors, our investors are mandating the same scoring methodology across their portfolio of companies. So we need to use the typical decimal values of RICE.

    Aha! is giving me integer numbers for all and there are a ton of each of the integers, but not much differentiation between them. When I had this in my staging spreadsheet, one decimal place really helped show the strata within the integer values.

    We've found even with very large (e.g. $10k unit) increments in the scorecard, there's still a valid use case for using decimals.

    Use case: We use a 1-5 scoring 3-point system to create a total score so used to using a decimal point scoring system. As you don't have this feature we've had to change the way we score and evaluate new product feature requests. Would be great if we had the flexibility to do this in your tool.

    This is a big requirement because without it there is now way to implement RICE methodology cleanly

    Agreed, decimals are desired. Two decimal places please, AND ability to represent RICE Confidence percentage as a decimal instead of a whole number percent.

    We are planning to use RICE scoring. For 'Confidence' we want to use decimal  like ".50, .75, 1" to  represent the percentage.  This returns results like "6.75".  With the current function we must represent percentage as "50, 75, 100" which instead returns "675".  The information is the same but it is visually and conceptually easier to compare scores with lower numbers and decimals associated.

Support decimals in custom scorecard

Merged
In situations where customers use a scorecard like Weighted Shortest Job First, where you are dividing by job size, there are instances where the resulting score would be less than 1, so it would be helpful to support decimals vs. just whole numbers.

For feature scoring, Please can you add more granularity to the score other than an "Integer"?

Merged
WSJF requires a greater granularity (xx.xx) to be effective. " That's too bad.. for WSJF you need that sensitivity otherwise the scoring is not really useful. "

Have decimals in total number at WSJF level

Okay so it seems when creating metrics you can have decimals, however the end number so total will never have a decimal but only a whole number - can you please change this so a decimal in the whole number can happen?

I need the ability to see the decimal values for our RICE score and currently the final result shows up as a whole number. This doesn't help with prioritization where the granular details are important.
